Another man in a business suit runs up and says can I help?
"Sure sir, can you tell me where I am?"
"Most certainly, you are in a balloon, in the middle of a field, probably somewhere within a calculable radius of the exact coordinates of your departure."
"Pardon me, but are you an economist at the Federal Reserve Bank?"
"Yes, how did you know?"
"Because what you just told me is totally logical, well thought out and within a distributed range of possible outcomes, totally useless."
